curt-1: values for NodeEditVAL.VAL_TRUE, VAL_FALSE, VAL_UNKNOWN
The values assigned for VAL_TRUE, VAL_FALSE and
VAL_UNKNOWN appear to just follow the sequence established
by VAL_WF, VAL_NS_WF, VAL_INCOMPLETE and VAL_SCHEMA (1, 2,
In scripting languages where the symbolic constants are
not available, that would lead to code like:
if (node.canInsertBefore(node1, node2) == 6)
which isn't obvious. It would be beneficial to change the
values so that, at least, VAL_FALSE is 0. I'd recommend,
VAL_FALSE = 0, VAL_TRUE = 1 and VAL_UNKNOWN = 2.
